I didn’t realize the gap between a good idea and making it a marketable product. NMSU’s Arrowhead Center introduced us to new and connected us to investors.
NMSBA is trying to help you solve your problems. From a small business perspective, this help is very valuable. You can’t get it anywhere else.
Thanks to NMSBA,our statistical anomaly recognition and resolution capability has been very well received by our customers and undoubtedly contributed to us closing all of our large customer deals since the completion of this project.
They really took our production process from just a stack of blueprints to a real system. They’ve helped us with organization so much, now we can be ready when people start placing orders.
The technical assistance we received from Los Alamos through NMSBA gave us the firepower to go to investors, partners and grant agencies so that we can better compete in this growing worldwide market.
NMSBA has helped us focus our internal R&D efforts and,therefore, streamline and accelerate our product development,which has a large cost savings.
NMSBA gave me access to engineering prowess I just couldn’t find in the private sector. This helped us prove that our product does what we say it does.
It was amazing to have the resources of Sandia. The engineers at the Labs had the specific expertise in mechanical design that made our idea into a reality.
NMSBA pulled together an awesome team that helped us realize our vision.
Because of NMSBA’s help, we are in the process of constructing a second building so that we can fabricate our own components that we currently buy from suppliers.
By participating in NMSBA, we’ve been able to pursue cuttingedge technology for our mobile app, which has a direct correlation to getting more users and investors.
I knew that the problem was something beyond my ability to solve and would be useful to everyone else who makes clay prints. The help I received—it’s something I could not have gotten anywhere else.
NMSBA enabled me to tap into high-level resources and expertise. Our company has grown into a national outdoor lifestyle brand, and I couldn’t be happier with how it’s all panned out.
The technical evaluation performed through NMSBA enabled us to successfully compete and win grants to begin manufacturing prototypes of our technology.
I recommend reaching out to NMSBA if you have a technical problem. The national laboratories have the resources small businesses simply do not have.
NMSBA and the national laboratories are the best way to go for small businesses, particularly for those that have complex technical problems. Without such support, many of these problems just don’t get fixed.
With the techical assistance provided by Sandia through NMSBA, we are now in a position of manufacturing the highest frequency bandwidth current sensors in the world.
For us, having NMSBA connect us with Los Alamos enabled us to obtain expertise we could not find anywhere else.
This work by Sandia was key in allowing me to project what the cost of energy is likely to be when we scale this up into a commercial scenario.
